'' The Voodoo Collection celebrates the mysticism, magic, and expansiveness of the religion, inspired by its permanence in the New Orleans landscape and culture. ''

Let me start off by saying that the launch party for the VooDoo Collection by Porter Lyons was by far, the coolest event I've ever been to. It took place on the rooftop of an apartment complex in the Bywater a couple Saturdays ago. The evening's entertainment consisted of  flame-throwers, tarot card readers, a fortune teller, and a killer red carpet. How many red carpet events have you been to where the props were an alligator, snake, or nutria?! (The snake's mouth wasn't taped shut so I passed.)

As I expected, the entire line was absolutely amazing.  I loved her use of natural/precious stones, darker colored metals, as well as how she incorporated parts of the snakes into her designs. It gave the collection a very spooky and tribal vibe. The Damballah Necklace, Mississippi Snake Ring, and the gold Cobra Drop Earrings were a few of my favorites. 

For my outfit, I stuck to my usual uniform - a black top, distressed denim, and strappy heels.
